Pal Dardai, who thinks of himself probably for a brutally realistic people, secretly harbors a strong penchant for superlatives. A few weeks ago, he has collected Marko Grujic to the best midfield players in recent club history Hertha BSC, and on Sunday, he ennobled the 3:0 success of his team at Borussia occurs Mönchengladbach at the best Away, under his now four-year-long responsibility. While Dardai, the coach of the Berlin Bundesliga club, with his assessment to Marko Grujic, at least in the case of his Manager Michael Preetz (Marcelinho!) the fierce opposition aroused, is likely to keep the Protest with a view on the game in the Borussia-Park. "To win In this level in Gladbach, an exclamation point," said Fabian Lustenberger.
to celebrate the success, we recommend a look at the Numbers. The company had previously won all nine home games this season, scoring a total of only three goals conceded so many Hertha scored in 90 minutes. Before the game, Borussia were the best defense in the League; of their 21 goals conceded in 21 encounters, a third goes to the 4:2 in the first leg on the account of the Berlin. "And you don't need to talk from the luck factor," said coach Dardai. "There is enough relief was there."
Perhaps the next strong opponents defended a blessing in disguise
Hertha good, because the team remained in the Defensive, Pro-active and not just in the back. "Gladbach is not to simply defend," said Luke Klünter. "But we have played it reasonably down." In the last line of Chan, the Team is navigated depending on the game situation between the three-, four -, and five chain. Dardai spoke of a defense, as in basketball. The nominal Gladbach striker Lars Stindl, who is a gifted transformer between the lines, always remained a Berlin defender on his heels, when he station, a look to play into midfield. Dardais assistant Rainer Widmayer, praised the attitude of the players, the willingness to help each other. "The team was focused the entire time, focused, greedy," he said. "This was an exceptional performance."
It was not the first Time that Hertha against an exceptional opponent to such an exceptional performance rousing. Four games in Berlin have played already this season against the Top three Teams in the League. You are up against Bayern, Dortmund and Gladbach still unbeaten and have taken ten of twelve possible points. Trouble Hertha rather with the level. "We have again shown that we can compete against the big opponents," said Marko Grujic. Why is it so? "No idea," replied Davie Selke. "But it may go on like this."
Possibly can motivate the Team against the better than for the supposed duty tasks, seemingly in the Pre-check. "This is a learning process," said Widmayer. In addition, it is contrary to Hertha, if the opponent wants to play football and Berlin may be more likely to take a reactive role. "We are looking forward to play against great opponents," said Salomon Kalou. "Against Gladbach, it is always difficult, but also good games, because you are looking for the way forward, and we get our chances."
Still a flaw in the overall consideration of the previous season, as defeats against relegation candidates Stuttgart and Düsseldorf, the impression has solidified that for Herthas team in growth already, more would have been possible. "You just saw what potential we have," said Selke. "We need to retrieve much more often."
Before the game at Borussia-Park, with the emerging world saw Dardai again doom and gloom faced, in view of the upcoming meetings in Gladbach, against Bremen and Bayern. But perhaps the game plan is a blessing in disguise. Also Bremen has a team that understands football as a game and not as a work of destruction. "The League is so crazy," said Dardai. "Anyone can beat anyone."More about

to have the last Thursday Dardai has put a value on it, never out of the Europa League, spoke. That's what he did on Sunday. "Now we go into the Phase where it gets interesting," said the Hungarian. The Mature appearance against Gladbach has fed his Confidence. "Which team can remain constant? This is what decides who is allowed to play next year in the Europa League,“ said Herthas coach. "There are eight teams that are similar. You have to be first. But you have to win a victory.“ Two wins in a row – that is managed Hertha this season, only twice.
